Sociology and child welfare expert Jennifer Reich gives a glimpse into her decade-long research on vaccine refusal in America. In Calling the Shots: Why Parents Reject Vaccinations, Reich dissects a wide range of perspectives on this controversial topic – from the parents who refuse vaccinations, to the pediatricians whose research shows this decision can be devastating. Reich allows readers the opportunity to understand this disagreement and consider the possible solutions.
